Good Game based movies?

Postby kindridspirit » Sat Sep 19, 2009 7:28 am

I can't think of any good video game based movies that are good. Maybe I'm just watching the wrong one's or something?

I think an animated movie of Canine Combat might be cool.

Here's a list of some Video game movie adaptations I've seen:

Doom
Bloodrayne
Super Mario Bros

Um, that's about it.

I thought the new street fighter movie was OK. Sure it was a little over the top and cheezy, but I still enjoyed it.

I don't think video game movies should be taken seriously, I think part of the fun is in the cornball-ishness.

I find that the cutscenes in games are often good enough movies themselves.

Tomb Raider was good, but predictable.

I don't know about movies, but there used to be an Zelda cartoon a few years back.

This is slightly off topic, but I just saw Avatar and I must say, I was very impressed.

Yes, it is off topic, but I agree. Anyone who hasn't seen the film should definitely go see it.
